. good to have you with us. bill kristol is -- i know i not gone into shock or surprise you. you know this well. bill kristol said, talking with chris wallace, the leaders in the republican party and the leaders in the conservative movement has to pull back, let people flow of new ideas, the scream and yell when one person says, you know what, it won't kill the country of we raise taxes a little. a little on millionaires. you don't like that. >> well, not at all. you know, compromise has come to mean one thing, i guess the last 50 years that i have been involved in politics at the national level, we grow government. we compromise on the size of the growth, but at the end of the day the government power increases, the individual's power is reduced, and taxes go up and spending goes up and we keep kicking the can down the road. in people don't like that. that is one reason why the republicans did so poorly in this election. they have a very poor image. the brand needs major repair. lou: a lot of -- it looks like millions, millions of folks, and it's interesting, no one is talking about
after morsi grabbed almost total power in that country. it's time for our sunday group. bill kristol of the weekend standard. kirsten powers from the daily beast website. fox news's liz cheney and political analyst juan williams. bill, how serious -- do you believe it's morsi claim it's a temporary measure or is this a islamist coo? >> we don't know but we have some influence to make it one over the other. secretary clinton was there and then morsi makes his announcement two days after she levitt the country. this is a place we have no relation with and don't give a lot of aid to so it's a test for the administration. can we pressure morsi and induce morsi to let there be a constitutional process. >> kirsten, how much -- this gets to the question i was discussing with with john mccain. how much can and should the administration do to put pressure on morsi. >> the issue they're facing is egypt plays an important role in the situation with israeli. it's interesting after that happened morsi did that. he has a feeling he has a strong hand. they're going to have to figure out how much th
and the republicans say not so fast, bill kristol was on this show, last week, and he said, you know, it wouldn't kill the republicans to raise taxes on millionaires a little bit. is he wrong? >> well, i think you look at the contrast between washington and what is happening in our states. the vast majority of us new governors two years ago inherit major budget deficits and balanced them without raise taxes and states like wisconsin we cut taxes over the past two years, and, revenues have gone up. i think most americans, not just those in politics, most americans look at what is happening in washington and think, they are missing the boat. the economy is a much bigger issue, don't get me wrong, they need to balance the budget and need to take care of the fiscal issues, but more importantly, we need to get the economy going and get people back to work and, that fiscal affects the middle class now and the fact they talk about anything that might make it worse is a bad sign about what is happening in washington. >> chris: let's talk briefly, and i have run into a time crunch in a minute and i'll ask you
grabbed almost total power in that country, this week. time for our sunday group. bill kristol of "the weekly standard," kirsten powers from the daily beast web site and fox news analyst liz cheney and fox news political analyst, juan williams. bill, how serious is the situation in egypt in do you believe his claim that this is a temporary measure? until the country adopts a new constitution? or is it possibly an islamist coup? >> we don't know. we have some influence i think to make it one and not the other and that is the test for us and it is a test for us, the administration, secretary clinton was there, earlier this week, and, then, morsi makes the announcement, what, two days after she left the country and this is not a place we don't have relations schmidt, and a place we don't give a lot of aid to and it is a test to the administration, can we pressure and introduce him to let there be -- and induce him, and the who ... >> chris: kirsten, this is the question i discussed with john mccain, how much can and should the administration do to try to put pressure on morsi to pull back
is interesting, a lot of things are now on the table. just this weekend bill kristol, the republican london, had this to say about how they could find common grund. >> you know what, it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires it really won't. gerri: the president has said raise taxes on people who aren't $250,000 or more, something very different. the think e republicans are sponsoring on this topic? >> first of all, you ave had some democrats saying, actually, let's set it at a million rather than going down to 200. gerri: because he is in new york city were a lot of people make 250,000. >> you are not rich. you don feel rich. and the irony is, you listen to joe biden and barack obama talk about it, and it suds like they're only taxing millionaires and billionaires because their the only peopl they ever invoke, but what billas talking about is more a zessty debate within the right about the sort of things without the debate being shut down automatically at. now, if he's talking about raising rateon millionaires, i think that reall is bad for te tax system. as we we
. but there was a shocker on "fox news sunday" as conservative commentator bill kristol, been a guest on our show. mr. chris stole editor of "the weekly standard", surprised his own party with this statement. >> it won't kill the country if we raise tax as little bit on millionaires. really won't, i don't think. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offer. melissa: so he continued asking why the republican party would fall on sword defending bunch of millionaires voted democrat and half would live in hollywood and half are hostile. that part makes sense. i don't agree with the first part but the last part. what do you think, lou? >> i think it is interesting. i haven't talked to kristol since i made the comments. a, i don't know any republican who is ready to fall on their sword if they do possess such things. secondly, i don't know what the obama offer was that he is so eager to have the republicans accept. peculiar. i thought it was also fun that bill kristol decided he didn't see any harm in millionaires paying a little more in taxes but he didn't want anybody to kill them for saying so.
republican senator bob co. let me read you a quote from bill kristol whose father is a supply side mentor of mine. quote, it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. end quote. what's your take on kristol's quote? >> well, i do think we can look at some pro-growth reforms that do away with loopholes and credits and all of those kind of things we have been talking about for some time. we can do that in a way that sometime late economic growth. that is the way we need to focus and not on race. speaker boehner was out last week and -- talking about his willingness to do that. hope reply the president will step away from the rate issue and focus on this olive branch i think boehner rightfully has laid out. so -- i do hope we will solve this problem. >> okay. let me just pursue this a little bit. i'm in a challenging mode. okay. you know me. i'm a supply cider. i'm for a 15% plat tax rate. no deductions. we are not going to get that, at lowes not immediately. let me ask you, would you or other republicans who are fiscal conservatives, as you are, would you buy int
, are there a lot of them coming out. kristol is out there, some of the really smart guys are saying we blew it, let's think. >> yes. well, some people like david brooks and bill kristol who are thoughtful conservatives, but they kind of suspended their disbelief i think during the last days and weeks of the campaign. they were all on board with romney. they were all saying the polls were going to be wrong and romney was going to get it and romney was on the right track and romney had the right ideas, et cetera, et cetera. they're to be expected to be among the early changers, among the early people on the road to damascus because they've got one foot in politics and the other in journalism. but i think jindal is interesting. i think the real fight now, chris, is not whether people are getting on the rooted. it's what they're saying on the road because they have different theories about how to go forward. one is economics, one is cultural, and one is immigration. i think there are basically three routes there. >> i wonder whether they're all agreeing to changes in their party philosophy that don't a
problematic is it that the self-described conservatives like bill kristol called for tax increases to protect the pentagon which then allows the major media to say even conservatives like bill kristol support tax increases to protect the pentagon. like me from the cato institute declaring myself and abroad and therefore being supportive of it's out of the reform and sang even the liberal kato institute endorses entitlement reform. >> taking it back words -- bill kristol has been on record saying it conservative did not want to be the war party, he would join up with the liberal hawks -- the democrat liberal hawks. i am not quite sure where it is the plural in democrat liberal hawks. i get to one and then i cannot think of more. but it was an odd sort of threat but it was kind of an explanation that he does not see himself as a mainstream reagan republican, that everything -- not reaganite foreign-policy but hawkish foreign policy. is not surprising. it is what he does, but it is not at all transferable. there isn't a caucus in the house and senate that falls and that kerkorian -- in that cate
at hand in the republican caucus -- peace is at hand in the republican caucus? bill kristol and others saying and do we really want to be the party defending tax cuts for people with car elevators? this is not the position they want to be in. if i were obama, i would get them in a room and keep them there. >> interesting when you watch what is going on right now. obama does this nice balance between i am open to everything but i am drawing one redline, the millionaires -- >> i don't hear him changing on that. >> he's not kidding people being really tough in di -- is not. the people being the top of the democrats in the -- in really tough are the democrats in the house and senate. >> boehner as a caucus that has dug in its heels on any kind of compromise. the picture of the john boehner, this cartoon character, holding a football, saying to president obama, "trust me it." >> you know, there was an election on november 6, and the democrats did not do that badly. who gives here? >> everybody has got to give. >> you say it and say and say, but you cannot tax your way out of this debt and y
kristol and others are saying do we really want to be the party -- defending eleva tax cuts for people with car elevators? if i were obama, i would get them in a room and keep them there. >> but it is interesting when you watch what is going on right now. obama does this very nice balance between "i am open to everything, but i am drawing one red line for millionaires --" >> i don't hear him changing on that. >> he is not. the ones who are being really tough for the democrats in the house and the senate. they are the ones doing the public posturing for him. >> i think also that john boehner does not have a strong hand. he has got a caucus that has dug in its heels on any kind of compromise. i saw this picture of john boehner, this cartoon character, holding a football and saying to president obama "trust me." >> there was an election on november 6 and the democrats did not do that badly. who is here? >> everybody has got to give. >> it really is true. you cannot tax your way out of this debt, you cannot slash expenses and get out of this in debt. you have got to do both. >> somewhat gr

. smaller government, less spending and low tax rates work. that's why this comment from bill kristol has me shaking my head. >> it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it won't, i don't think. i don't understand why republicans won't take obama's offer to freeze taxes to everyone below $2350,000, make it $1 million. really? the republican party is going to fall on their sword to protect millionaires half of whom vote democratic and live in hollywood? >> eric: raising taxes is not the answer. allowing people to keep their hard earn money is the answer and the only way to bring growth back. growth is the gasoline that powers the american economy. >> kimberly: i like that. >> eric: then you can start. were you shaking your head when mr. bill kristol decided raising taxes is okay thing to do? >> kimberly: i was. i usually like what he has to say. it didn't love that. i didn't heart that. he agrees with axelrod so i really don't like that. let me tell you something, there wasn't a mandate here. charles krauthammer even said so. he didn't win by an enormous amoun
on everyone. gerri willis is with us, in other than bill kristol said this will not kill us. he pointed out under president reagan taxes on the rich were 50 percent and that was the highest tax rate and we did well. >>gerri: what bill kristol said we would be okay if we raised taxes on people would on the other hand $1 million or more but not specifically addressing what the president said which is raising taxes on people who earn $250,000 or more which is opposed by some democrats here in new york city. >>shepard: no one wants to pay more taxes. what the president is doing he is not saying $250,000, to observers it sounds as if he is ready for compromise. he said he is ready for compromise. >>gerri: and today he met with a dozen corporate leaders from the biggest corporations, walmart, g.e. and chevron, at least six of them in the meeting today have already served on either the president's jobs council or other councils the president has had and lot of people discussing what to do with the fiscal cliff. interesting to see if they will get anywhere. the big question, where were the people f
taxes republican mantra for 98% of mens and the republicans are saying not so fast. bill kristol was on the show and he said it wouldn't kill republicans to raise taxes on millionaires a little bit. is he wrong? >> if you look at the conflict between washington and the state house, that's where those of white house are new governors inherited budgets as state and balanced them without raising taxes. the state like wisconsin, we cut taxes in the past two years and revenues have gone up. most americans look at what is happening in washington and think they are missing the boat. the economy is a much bigger issue. don't get me wrong. they need to balance the budget. take care of fiscal issues. more importantly we need to get the economy going and get people back to work. that disproportionately affects the middle class now. the fact they talk about anything that might make it worse for the economy is bad sign about what is happening in washington. >> chris: let's talk briefly. i run in a time crunch here in a minute so i'll ask you for quick answers on specific groups. the problems
in the panel. bill kristol of "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with the hill. syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. okay, bill, is this part of the kabuki theater, the dance, choreographed back and forth? or are we really looking at something that is in deep trouble here? >> it looks to me more like the theater. the president understandably is going to put out his optimal scenario first. especially since he is going to try to hammer republicans on the greatest vulnerability, the president will say over and over i propose and the senate democrats passed the tax cut, 98% of all americans to take a lot of, a lot of what the fiscal cliff is. move a lot of the damage to the economy on january 1. let's go ahead and pass that. we can debate the upper income taxes and the spending later. it's not implausible, you can make a sophisticated argument why it's a mistake but as a first blush argument the president has the advantage. >> bret: juan? >> i think that you are starting to see much of the posturing and the poxing and the -- positioning and the democrats and president have advantage
news this weekend was conservative pundit and weekly standard editor bill kristol telling republicans it was time to fall on their swords. >> the conservative movement has to pull back, let people float their ideas, let's have a serious debate. don't scream and yell when one person says, you know what? it won't -- if we raise republicans. i don't understand why republicans don't hate obama's offer? >> make it a million. >> really the republican party is going to fall on its sword for a bunch of millionaires. half of them are voting democratic. and half of them live in hollywood. >> but the question remains, what would a deal look like and is there time left this year to put a full deal together? jonathan allen is a senior washington correspondent for politico. he joins us now from washington. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> so let me first get to -- i'll get to the fiscal cliff but first want to get your reaction to the petraeus story. there are reports this morning that the fbi and the justice department knew about this over the summer, as early as over the summer, and some
it is a mistake to fight over the bush tax cuts, but bill kristol might say what ar whethe rates go up? and the death of the twinkie. or is it? what will they do with those recipes? do they disappear? what about ding dong? we will answer that. first, a look at the winners on the s&p 500. before copd... i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. with symbicort, today i'm breathing better. and that means...fish on! symbicort is for copd including chronic bnchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more thanwice a day. symbirt may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, d some eye problems. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. with copd, i thought i'd miss our family tradition. now symbicort significantly improves my lung function
hearing from the speaker and bill kristol saying, well, you can maybe raise taxes on the rich. some of them live in hollywood anyway. >> it's like a new day in washington, right? >> this like the cement cracking around ronald reagan's feet, the first time he raised taxes. i remember when he said that. >> yes, exactly. well, i think the speaker, i think, is setting the tone, as you saw on the front page, above the fold in "the washington post," you know. call his caucus to task, saying he's got to get the nation's business done. and i think what he said implicitly and probably directly behind the door is, trust me on this. you know, i get it. i understand what we need to do. we're not going to sacrifice our principles and values, but we've got to get the nation's business done. and then when we have a bill kristol coming out and saying, you know, they're all rich guys who live out in hollywood. we can raise their taxes. what an 180-degree turn. >> they're not the small business men. >> you'll probably note this, what an election will do. winning and losing has a consequence. and i th
, shepard. >> shepard: republicans here and there are changing their tunes on a lot of things. bill kristol the conservative commentator is one of them, he says raise taxes on the millionaires it won't kill us that shook the g.o.p. establishment. he supports the president's own deficit reduction commission taxes and spending cuts which mr. obama himself turned down. crystal's comments came on "fox news sunday." >> you know what? it won't kill the country if we raise taxes a little bit on millionaires. it really won't. i don't understand why republicans don't take obama's offers to freeze taxes on everybody below 250,000. >> since polls indicate most people favor phasing out he upper income tax cuts. kristol ask why should republicans fall on swords for a bunch of millionaires who half of them live in hollywood and vote democratic anyway. two states have responded to make it legal to smoke marijuana and get high. world leaders have questions. for starters is it time to change drug policies. voters in colorado and washington state decided to legalize recreational recreational marijuana or mar
to explain herself and her position. >> and weekly standard editor bill kristol, of course one of the more conservative interventionists out there, gave rice a backhanded compliment on "fox news sunday." >> i rather think he will appoint susan rice, and i think, i'm not a huge fan of hers, but she is likely to be confirmed by the senate. john kerry would be a worse secretary of state so just let him have the secretary of state he wants. >> kristol's argument is rice has appeared more interventionist than john kerry. so the softening does not mean an end to the partisan battle over benghazi. republicans made it clear if rice is nominated they plan to make her confirmation hearing a proxy fight for their sustained prosecution of what they believe is the poor response to the september 11th attack. >> when she comes over, if she does, a lot of questions asked of her about this event and others. we're going to hold people accountable for a major national security breakdown three weeks before the election. that is our job. >> why did the administration think it had to cover up all of the things
